EASY TUNA POKE BOWLS

Updated: Apr 26, 2020

Easy Poke Bowls

There are few things in life more satisfying than catching your own dinner.

This recipe is one of our all time favorites for fresh Tuna! You can also substitute fresh Wahoo in this recipe as well. Tuna Poke is seriously so easy to make, and requires NO cooking skills ;)

Poke bowls are a traditional Hawaiian dish that calls for just a few simple ingredients, but the combination is savory and satisfying! We like to kick it up a notch with our tasty homemade sriracha mayo and fresh garnishes!

Essentially in a bowl you’ll layer white rice, the Tuna Poke marinade, then add fresh garnishes to taste.

S O S I M P L E!

Like all of our recipes we don’t follow an exact measurement science, but more of a ‘season to taste’ approach.


As they say in Hawaiian, E ‘ai kāua! Enjoy!

Ingredients for serving 4ish:

Fresh Tuna (Blackfin, or Yellowfin) 2lbs

Sesame oil, 1/8 cup

Soy sauce, 1/8 cup

Sesame seeds, sprinkle on to your liking

Scallions, 1/8 cup

1 cup of white rice (we like Basmati)

Cucumber, 1 diced

Avocado, 1 diced

Lima Beans (canned or frozen) 1 Cup

Pickled ginger (typically used as a sushi garnish)

Wasabi (typically used as a sushi garnish)

Mayonnaise about 1 cup

Sriracha hot sauce ¼ cup

Lemon, 1 sliced

Garlic clove, 1 diced

Poke Sauce (marinade) for the tuna:

Fresh Tuna fillets about 2lbs diced

Sesame oil, 1/8 cup or 2 Tablespoons

Soy sauce, 1/8 cup or 2 Tablespoons

Sesame seeds, sprinkle on to your liking

Scallions, sprinkle on to your liking

· Dice your tuna into bite sized cubes

· Drizzle your sesame oil and soy sauce onto the tuna and gently mix

· Dice your scallions and sprinkle onto the tuna mix

Cover and place tuna mixture into the refrigerator

(yes y’all its that easy…)

Ingredients for Rice

1 cup of white rice (short or long grain, we like long grain Basmati or Jasmine)

· Follow preparation instructions on rice packaging

· Once cooked, set aside and let cool (slightly chill in the refrigerator if you’d like)

Letting the rice cool is Key, you want the rice and the Poke Mixture to be slightly chilled and close to the same temperature as each other.

Ingredients for Garnishes:

Cucumber, 1 diced

Avocado, 1 diced

Lima Beans (canned or frozen work great) 1 Cup

Pickled ginger (typically used as a sushi garnish)

Wasabi (typically used as a sushi garnish)

Mayonnaise about 1 cup

Sriracha hot sauce ¼ cup

Lemon, 1 sliced into pieces

Garlic clove, diced (or minced) about one teaspoon

Salt, sprinkle to taste

· Put mayonnaise into mixing bowl, mix in sriracha, and garlic. Squeeze in a slice of lemon, add salt to taste. Mix well. Let it chill in the refrigerator before serving.

Meanwhile…

· Dice Cucumber, put in serving dish

· Dice Avocado, put in serving dish

· Place lima beans in serving dish

· Set out your Pickled Ginger

· Set out your Wasabi

· Set out the rest of lemon slices

Now build your bowl: start with a scoop of rice, then layer on the Tuna Poke mix. Next add your garnishes. Drizzle with Sriracha mayo. Squeeze of lemon. Grab your chop sticks and enjoy!
